Scores updated! (Full disclosure, my first run didn't quite make it on my high score board and I can't recall 100% whether I was on my 3rd or 4th stage, and I didn't want to reset the EPROM lest I lose unlocked ships, etc.)

However, my better score was the run just before my clear. I lost then my explosion finished off the second form of the boss >_>

Or is it better to work on the multiplier thing going on in the top left, I assume that is chain kills?

Do medals determine that? I honestly don't know. Just prioritize getting medals and not dying and you'll be golden.

Rank is where this game gets bananas and really complicated. I'm still not totally clear on how to manipulate rank.

Medals max out at 10k and you’ll get the random 100k, but you can’t miss one. If multiple medal values are on the screen at the same time and you get the higher value medal when it’s last on the screen you’ll get to continue your medal chain.

To get around rank reset the game in between every credit, no?

Ah, ok. I was wondering what triggered 100k medals. I hadn't even seen them until the run that I posted.

Somehow, I was thinking there was a way to lower rank in the midst of a credit, but that's probably incorrect.

I'm pretty positive that I witnessed max rank in the run that yielded that score though. Shit was totally insane. Got three or four bosses into the boss alley on stage 6, but it was too gnar and I couldn't hang. I've bagged this one up a handful of times, but I've never seen it like that before.

Nice clear @Ajax ! 🙌

Survival clears are a lot of fun, going for medal chaining eventually makes rank go insane on this game lol

I don’t quite get how to exploit the multiplier chain, there is a vid on YT where someone gets 11 million just on stage 1 from the boss.. it’s a whole different game!

Thanks man 🙏

I do believe regular pickups also have an effect on rank, for whatever that's worth. I think there's a more in depth guide out there too. I know I've read over it before.

Wild stuff. There's a lot of depth to this game, it's pretty crazy. There's a lot of hidden stuff going on too. The flame thrower turret at the beginning of the desert stage, for example - if you destroy it point blank before it starts shooting flames, you get something different than you do normally, can't remember what it is right now, possibly medals.

Thread updated. Added a separate section to note 1CCs even if they aren't the highest scores per member, just for fun

Improved my 1CC score slightly, sadly missed the extend when it dropped - though I think this may have reduced rank? Not sure, could have just been in my head.

Also improved my top score a bit:

If you're holding more than the default amount of ships, this game is gonna try to crucify you, so yeah, not a bad strategy, really (assuming you were at full lives when the extend dropped).
